If the word “craft” conjures up loomed potholders and macrame, think again. Craft Lake City’s DIY Festival brings together 200 artisans for a three-day event that broadens the definition of handmade art to include music, artisanal food, jewelry, clothing and a whole building dedicated to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). The not-for-profit festival facilitator, Craft Lake City, was founded in 2009 by SLUG magazine publisher Angela Brown to “educate, promote and inspire local artists.” And engineers and scientists. August 11-13, Gallivan Center, 239 Main Street, SLC, craftlakecity.com/diy-festival
